    Support for Importing Dynamic VDBs

     

    TEIIDDES-2343

     

    The Import/Export Dynamic VDB functionality was implemented to support converting between both types of Teiid VDB artifacts.  In this feature the user is expected to import their *-vdb.xml file into their workspace via drag-n-drop of Eclipse's Import > General > File System action.

     

    Once in your workspace, simply:

     

    Step 1: select the dynamic VDB and right-click select Modeling > Generate VDB Archive and Models action.

    Step 2: The first page of the wizard displays the file name, VDB name within the *-vdb.xml file and the XML file contents. Click Next > to continue.

    Step 3: On the second page, change any applicable VDB properties, verify your source and view model names and click Generate.

        • This will generate *.xmi model files representing the DDL model metadata from your dynamic vdb.
        • This will generate a *.vdb archive file containing copies of your *.xmi models as well as the indexed metadata files (*.INDEX files)
